Hi there 🙂 Another boss’s birthday, another card. My bosses are really pretty great, so I like to have a bit of fun and make something a little special for them. I figured this one could use a fidget toy, too, so made him this shaker card. For the shaker part, I created a sunburst effect for the background from strips of paper that I have left over from making envelopes. I die cut the frame with a scrap of red cardstock, then filled it with some bright shaker “stuff”. I found a scrap of blue to layer behind the shaker, then die cut the sentiment from a bright yellow. Before gluing things down, I added a scattering of chunky silver embossing powder, to tie in with the silver bits in the shaker. As I was layering things up, I added a yellow banner piece to balance things out. For a tiny finishing touch, I glued a red shaker star in the centre of one of the sentiment letters.
I’d like to enter this in the following:
